Due to the onset of preeclampsia, eight-months pregnant neurosurgeon May Evans has been placed on bed rest and ordered to “do less”…forcing her husband Sam, a popular online journalist, to try and keep her from sneaking off to make calls to her staff. But as May’s condition worsens, she begins receiving disturbing anonymous emails about Sam and his “online activities,” which he claims are linked to his controversial articles and research methods. As the truth behind the emails is revealed, Sam and May are plunged into a nightmarish world of online vigilantism, articulate fetuses and legal drama.
